I can think of a lot of reasons one would be thankful for, but mine is a situation I am very grateful and thankful for. Many people are thankful for other things but I am not I am thankful for three things in my life. I am a senior and six years ago I went thru a divorce. I was living in a Mobile Home all paid for but my husband at the time decided to have a home built. We had the home built and moved into the nice Ranch Home. I thought we would have been married for a long time. We were married for twenty-two years when my husband wanted a divorce. So I divorced him and managed to keep a nice home. I was able to get the mortgage into my name because I had good credit. Now I live with my Toy Poodle, and my cat, I have a mortgage to pay every month. I am glad I have the money to pay the mortgage every month.
No matter what age you are working out is good for you! Whether you go to the gym or do it in your home it doesn't matter. I am a senior and I like to dance. It does not matter what music I put on the stereo I will dance to it. When I was young I went roller skating and ice-skating. I was happy doing those things and I was getting plenty of exercises. Today I do not do the things that I did when I was a teenager. But my love for music and dance will never leave me. I like all different music, even Opera is great to listen to and work out too. I also like classical music and show tunes. I do not like country music I prefer the oldies but goodies.
I could remember when I had my first cup of coffee. I was about fourteen or fifteen when my mom let me try it. I tried the coffee and I liked it right away! Ever since then I drink coffee with cream and sugar. There was one time in my life I was drinking coffee black with sugar. I drank this kind of coffee for a year. I started having stomach problems, I found out it was because I was not putting cream in the coffee! I went back to putting cream in the coffee when I did my stomach problems went away. I am a senior now and I drink coffee and I love to have it with Pie or Cake. Coffee goes together with these two deserts great! It doesn't matter what kind of Pie or Cake it is coffee goes great with them. I like having coffee in the morning and, I like having it with Pie or Cake. Donuts are great to have with coffee too! It was the way I was brought up, my Dad liked to have Cake or Pie with his morning coffee. To this day that is what I love to have in the morning.
It all started when I was about five years old, my Dad taught me to swim! He was a very good swimmer, he taught me to dive, he also taught me the backstroke. I was very young, I waited for him to come home so I could go to the beach and swim. He also taught my siblings how to swim but I loved the sport more than they did. Every chance I got I went to the beach to swim. I grew up and spent my teenage years going to the beach every day. I would ride my bicycle to the beach every single day. Sometimes my mom drove me to the beach, then in the early evening, she drove me home. I loved being at the beach with my friends, we were sunbathing on the sand. I loved having the sun hitting my skin, sometimes I would get sunburned. My mom would put Noxema on my sunburn. I did use sunburn lotion but sometimes it did not work. I loved swimming, I had many swimsuits to choose from. I loved having different ones I could wear when I was at the beach.
At three years old I was dancing no one could not stop me from dancing. At the age of six, my mom enrolled me in dancing class. I was learning to Balet and I loved it. I went on stage a few times but my mom could not pay for the lessons. I had to stop going to dance class and I was devastated. Even though I was not going to Balet school I still danced. I grew up from six years old to a teenager. I was in the 7th grade and became friends with a boy my age. The boy also loved to dance we danced and practiced all the time. We were one of the best dancers in 7th grade. My mom could not stop us from dancing. We went to all the school dances and danced up a storm! When we danced everyone stopped and watched us dance to the music. We were great partners together and we loved to practice whenever we had the chance. I loved to dance with my partner he showed me many different dances. It was the sixties and most of the songs were from Elvis, The Beach Boys, etc. We also danced to Mo-Town songs too!
I was introduced to Chanel Parfume when I was a teenager. My father would buy Chanel No5 Parfume for my Mom on her birthday. I loved Chanel No5 the first day I sprayed it on my skin. It smelled so beautiful that I wanted one of my own. I grew up, married my first husband, and told him I wanted a Chanel No5 perfume. One Christmas he surprised me with a bottle of it! I was a very happy woman receiving my very own bottle of Chanel No5!! I right away put it on me and it smelled so heavenly! I told my husband he had given me the best Christmas gift of all! During the years my husband bought it for special occasions. I will never stop using this wonderful smelling Parfume! It is one of the best on the market and has been on the market for many many years. I am now a senior and will use this Parfume as long as I can.
